The Film Archive

Widely recognised by many as a cultural taonga and icon of our unique native flora, kauri trees and the exploitation of their timber have been at the heart of the story of the development of Aotearoa New Zealand. The kauri timber milling industry that flourished from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s was a massive economic driver for the burgeoning economy of a young nation, as well as shaping the development of towns and cities across the North Island.

This screening presents a selection of archival titles from the Film Archive that chart the shifting relationship between people and kauri over the last 100 years, followed by a new documentary examining the latest threat to kauri, a microscopic soil-borne organism causing the devastating Kauri Dieback Disease, and the role we must all now play in caring for kauri.

The screening will take approximately 60 minutes. After the screening there will be a Q&A with a member of the Auckland Council Biosecurity team working on research and management of Kauri Dieback Disease.

Presented in association with the Kauri Dieback Management Programme and the Auckland Council.

With thanks to Elam School of Fine Arts, The University of Auckland.

Admission free.

At the Elam School of Fine Arts Lecture Theatre, 20 Whitaker Place, ground floor, building 432, The University of Auckland.
